# c3 help! watch

1. k, i'm pretty sure this is easy, but can't seem 2 work it out!
Q7). The points P and Q lie on the curve with equation y=e(.5x)
The x-coordinate of P and Q are ln4 and ln16 respectively.
a). Find and equation for the line PQ
c). Calculate the length, to 3 sig. figures of the line segment PQ

2. a) Find the y coordinates of P and Q. With this you can find the gradient of the line PQ by m= (y_q - y_p)/(x_q-x_p).
Then put the coordinates of P or Q into
y-y_1 = m(x-x_1)
c) Use Pythagoras.
